The group of items is a list. It may be the list of groceries for the month, advantages of using a website for business, Steps involved in obtaining a passport, frequently asked questions on a stock exchange website.
The similarities in all the examples above are that they are a group of items so should be marked as a list. However the minor differences are,
- Items in the group can be any order i.e. un-ordered list. Eg: Advantages of a business website.
- Items if the order is shuffled the meaning may be changed or becomes completely invalid i.e. Ordered list. Eg: Steps involved in applying for a passport.
- Items that have two parts i.e. Definition list. Eg: FAQs, glosery etc.
Un-ordered list contains items that necessarily not required to be in an order. A group of links on a web page, requirements to apply for a job etc. These usually will be bulleted lists or any other style that are not a sequential representation.
<ul> element is used to markup the un-ordered list with li> for each list item.
Example: Terms & Conditions on a travel booking website are as follows.
<li>This Passengers should come to premises travel before 30 minutes.</li>
<li>The Company shall not be in any way responsible for any loss of Goods, Property of the passengers while travelling.</li>
<li>The Company shall not be responsible for any delay or inconvenience during the journey due to break down of the vehicle or other reason beyond the control of the company.</li>

Then The company should be full Authority to cancellation of tour,such type of cancellations we will inform to you. than we shall be refund of amount transfer to customer accounts within 5 working days.</li>
Ordered list should be only marked to the items that required to be in a sequence. In this type of list, if the items are shuffled the meaning will be changed. Steps involved in performing a task, procedure in a science experiment etc are some examples of ordered list.
